Hi there, it's trouble kid Kitt again
Less than a week ago I've built a new rig as you remember.
All was going very good until today - I've been experiencing few freezing while using the Logitech things (mouse, wheel) - so I had to press 'reset'.
I have a clean less than 1 week old Windows install (XP sp3 because of 3ds max and plugins)
In autorun there are only firewall, antivirus, nvidia panel and Logitech Profiler.
Did a memtest86 and few more tests in safe mode, all passed.
Inspected the motherboard visualy, no burnt capacitors or stuff like this, and well - the mobo was a brand new a week ago. (Asus P8Z68 deluxe I5 2600K)
I think the only cause of those freezes is the fact I've plugged a Logitech Wingman 3D joystick yesterday, to have a quick test on track (I have a setup for work and for modelling on one desk, and gaming monitor and rig separated, in another corner of room).
So all worked fine yesterday and I had no pc restart, but today the freezes came up.
Every time they appeared I was using the Logitech mouse, or heel/toe-ing on G27).
Checked the Profiler, it had some wrong detecting that I'm using the Wingman joystick at the moment, so I've fiddled with Profiler and removed it from autorun.
So far so good, spent 40 minutes in rF without problems,
but really... could Profiler and conflicting game controllers really cause all those weird freezing?
The last time when I had some random freezing like those - it was because my old mobo was dying, and it had the burnt capacitors.
